Maradona who led Argentina to the 1986 Soccer World Cup victory, a colossal game-changing event in the history of sports passed away at the age of 60. Widely regarded as the most gifted player in history, Maradona’s story is a real-life rag to riches story which is more surreal than a Hollywood potboiler. His two goals against England in 1986 world cup within 4 minutes enshrined him in the hall of fame. One infamous Hand of God goal (wherein he used hand for a strike, went unnoticed so unpenalized) and, the other the greatest goal of the century. His goal vs England bettered Michael Owen’s strike against Argentina in 1998 (second place) followed by Pele’s strike against Sweden in 1958.
